Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars are soft, chewy, and loaded with gooey chocolate and pieces of walnut. This recipe is gluten-free + refined sugar-free and ready in 30 minutes!
Hand’s down my new favorite cookie bar and its just a bonus that it is paleo! The texture is soft with crisp edges the way a cookie bar should be. Taste is naturally sweet from coconut sugar which can equally be subbed for brown sugar. I added walnuts because chocolate chip cookies with walnuts happen to be my favorite! So I figured why not add them to these amazing bars!
Lately at night once the day is officially over for me, kids asleep 😴, and the kitchen is clean I like to unwind. Recently its been me, the couch, a cup of peppermint tea and a baked good, damn that sweet tooth! I try to keep my late-night treats as healthy as I can but still satisfying. As I was sipping my tea all I wanted to eat was chocolate chip cookie last night so I got up and these glorious Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars were born!! So much for unwinding haha! 😆 I tore up my small kitchen at 9 pm but it was so worth it and so much better than eating my husband’s stash of double stuffed Oreos!
Make sure you use blanched almond flour because the almond meal is gritty! You can use grass-fed butter or ghee personally I like the flavor of grass-fed butter better. All your going to need is an electric hand mixer, a mixing bowl, and a tin baking dish!
